A Study of Schooling in the United States. September 1, 1973-August 31, 1979.
Goodlad, John I.; And Others
The purpose of this proposed study is to define and describe what school is, to examine the events that occur within schools and the meaning these events have for those in the school and its community. It will be composed of the following substudies: (1) curriculum, (2) global education, (3) art, (4) affective, (5) social system of the school staff, (6) social system of the classroom, and (7) school-community relations. The general purpose of the curriculum substudy is to determine what "curriculum" is from a variety of perspectives within the sample of schools. The global education substudy will be conducted to see what is being done in the nation's schools to develop a global perspective. The art substudy will attempt to identify existing methods and content of instruction in the arts, and to compare and contrast these with exemplary programs. The affective substudy was created to gather and analyze data which could provide insights into what is actually happening to children affectively in schools. The purpose of the social system of the school staff substudy is to look at the school as a place where adults interact with one another to produce the school setting, while the substudy on the social system of the classroom will investigate the relationship of teacher leadership to pupil productivity, morale, and compliance. Finally, the school-community relations substudy will attempt to characterize the nature of the relationship that exists between the school and its community. (RC)
